in reply to multiple XML fields in one line

Try replacing this one line in sub getMicroOrgs

push @{$ret}, $_->{Hit_def} foreach (@{$hits});


foreach (@{$hits}) { push @{$ret},join '|', $_->{Hit_def}, $_->{Hit_num}, $_->{Hit_hsps}->{Hsp}->{Hsp_identity}; }

    Thanks a lot for your help! Much appreciated.

    However, now the script is not working, it exits with an error message: "Not a HASH reference at line 102." It points to this line:

    push @{$ret},join '|',

    Something seems to be wrong with @{$ret}; I am educating myself on how Perl handles arrays, hashes, references and such, but in the meanwhile I'd be grateful if you would share your thoughts on this. Why it is not working now when previously it worked with the single XML field?

    Thanks a lot again!

      Can you provide a small sample of the XML file that fails.

        Yep, here is the first part, after the <Iteration_hits> there are lots of <Hit>-s, all with exactly the same structure, so I kept only the first two. The point is to search in the <Hit_def> of these <Hit>-s, but in the output we'd like to see the <Hit_num> and <Hsp_identity> attributes of the matching <Hit>-s too.
